Dickey-Thor matchup brings nostalgia for Mets

R.A. Dickey says the Mets will always have a special place in his heart for helping him resurrect his career seven years ago. The feeling is mutual -- and not just for the 20-win Cy Young season he had for the Mets in 2012 -- as Dickey also brought them Noah Syndergaard. The pair will square off Thursday when the Braves and Mets complete a rain-shortened two-game series at Citi Field.

R.A. Dickey Looking Forward To Citi Field Return

Before Monday’s rainout, former Met and Cy Young winner R.A. Dickey was going to face off against current Met and Cy Young threat Noah Syndergaard. It would have been a fun start to watch because of how different the two pitchers are – one throwing 100 mph fastballs and the other throwing 80 mph knuckleballs – but also because they were once traded for one another. After Dickey...

Dickey will still make his return to the Citi Field mound, it just won’t be against Noah Syndergaard, one of the players the Mets traded him for in 2012. The two were scheduled...

Which 2016 cellar dwellers have a chance to crash the playoff party?

R.A. Dickey’s unique stuff and conventional problems

There are things that are different about R.A. Dickey, of course. No one pitch was thrown as often as the 2,840 regular season knuckleballs that Dickey threw this year.

No pitch gets equal swinging strike results in...
